The BBC Guide to Comedy said of the show “a regular company of fine performers, good production values, incisive scripts and a snappy pace added up to a five-star gem in As Seen On TV. The show rarely dipped below brilliant and featured numerous delights, such as Wood's hilariously authentic dialogue and her surprisingly stinging satirical characters.” [1]


Wood was initially lured to the BBC, with a promise of bigger budgets and more creative control than on her last TV series, Granada Television's Wood and Walters. [2] This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


As Seen On TV would go on to firmly established her as Britain’s leading female comedian. [3]

Contents

Regular Items

As well as many stand alone sketches and songs, the show also contained the following regular items.


Stand up monologue

Each show would open with Victoria Wood doing a stand up comedy monologue. Often dressed in a multi-coloured suit, like her hero Max Miller. Max Miller, the Cheeky Chappie, was a 1930s English music hall comedian famous for his daringly risqué (for the period) repertoire (see Censorship), and gaudy suits. ...

Image File history File links Acorn_antiques. ... Crossroads was a British television soap opera set in a motel near Birmingham. ...


It soon became a national institution in Britain with it's parodying of filmed-as-live television, bad acting and contrived exposition ("What was that terrible noise? It sounded like a tray of coffee being dropped on someone who's just been electrocuted").


Probably the best remembered item from the series, in 2005 Acorn Antiques became a West End musical, starring the original cast and directed by Trevor Nunn. Clifford, Berta, Mrs O and Babs, as played by Duncan Preston, Victoria Wood, Julie Walters and Celia Imrie Acorn Antiques is a parodic soap opera written by Victoria Wood as a regular feature in the two seasons of Victoria Wood - As Seen On TV, which ran from 1985 to 1987. ...

Documentaries

Usually presented by Duncan Preston as ‘Corrin Huntley’, a series of spoof documentaries on such topics as a girl who wants to swim the channel, an old folks home, an exclusive girls public school (“There are all sorts of girls here, even coloured girls, though they tend to be princesses mainly”). Filmed more naturalistically than the rest of the show, they predate the more low key style of humour of The Royle Family and People Like Us by over a decade. The Royle Family is a popular BBC television situation comedy (sitcom) that ran for three series between 1998 and 2000. ...

Awards

  • The first series won the Broadcasting Press Award, BAFTA Award for Best Light Entertainment Programme and Best Light Entertainment Performance.
  • The second series won a BAFTA for Best Light Entertainment Programme.
  • The Special also won yet another BAFTA. [5]

Wood herself said of the awards at the time “I was very pleased to win, but it really put pressure on me. I was already writing the new series and every time I looked at the award I kept on thinking that people would be expecting so much more now and I Just wouldn’t be able to live up to it. In the end, I just put the thing away” [1]


Why did it end?

Wood ended the show after only two series and a special. She explained at the time "I love television, and if it was possible for me to work in it more, then I would; but because of the position I've put myself in of being the only writer on the show, I can't physicaly work in it that often. I've just had it with sketch shows for a bit - people have liked it, and I want to stop while they still like it" [2]


Script Books

There has been two books published featuring scripts from As Seen On TV. Up To You, Porky (published in 1985) features scripts from the show mixed in with extracts from Wood and Walters and Wood’s stage show Lucky Bag. In 1987, the follow up Barmy was published, featuring sketches entirely collated from ‘’As Seen On TV’’. [6]

“‘Chipper’ Patel arrived from New Delhi in 1962 with an artificial leg and five pounds in his pocket. He now controls a multi-million-pound vinyl flooring empire. He didn’t want to be filmed. So here’s a tatty old comedy programme with some women in it.” [26]

Trivia

  • Unlike their previous TV series together, Julie Walters name was no longer in the title. This was because in the interim, Wood was getting viewers of Wood and Walters turning up to her solo stand up shows expecting to see a double act. [28]
Image:Mavishooper.jpg
Charmain Eyre as Mavis Hooper in Crossroads. Is she the real Mrs Overall?
  • According to Wood, the character of Mrs Overall in Acorn Antiques was inspired by Mrs Mack in Take the High Road (Overall being a deliberate pun on mac) and Amy Turtle in Crossroads (originally played by Ann George). [29] However, Crossroads fans generally feel that whilst Mrs Overall's fluffing of her lines and position as char at the antiques shop were based on Amy, the character's mannerisms, voice and clothing were far more evocative of Charmian Eyre's character Mavis Hooper (who appeared in the series from 1981 to 1985). [30] [31]
  • Celia Imrie recieved a fan letter from playwright Alan Bennett. "He wrote a card to me saying he adored Miss Babs. You can't imagine how thrilling that was. I still have that card today." Imrie though believe that the praise should go to Wood's writing, "every word is of huge importance and crafted to perfection. It was a wonderful happy accident that I met her." [32]
  • Duncan Preston turned down Shakespeare to work on the show. Offered a world tour as Hotspur in Henry IV, Part One at the same time, he later said “I was at a crossroads and I had the choice of going straight or going off at a tangent with Victoria, I chose the latter and she changed my life” [4]
  • Actor Kenny Ireland went on to be artistic director of Edinburgh's Royal Lyceum Theatre, but he says he's still remembered best for his part in As Seen On TV. "Twenty-odd years ago I played Derek the handyman in Acorn Antiques. To this day, nice camp waiters quote my dialogue at me, and are slightly disappointed that I don't remember any of the lines." [33]
  • Derek Hobson, who plays the talent show host in ‘‘A Very Funny Young Man Indeed’’, was also the real host of talent show New Faces when Victoria Wood was a contestant over a decade earlier. [34] Her friend Celia Imrie was in the studio audience watching her.
  • Inbetween series one and two, Victoria Wood said she thought it was a mistake to do As Seen On TV, and attempted to write a play instead, before abandoning it and committing to a second series. “I’ve been seeking to branch out, but it hasn’t happened. I wanted to do something different before I went back on TV” [5]
  • As Seen On TV has not been repeated on British television since 1995. [36] [37] [38]
